So tomorrow, Sunday, I was asked to give a talk on "Love on Another". I am greatful for the chance to do this, even though I am super nervous, but I get to go back and read the conference talks and study more what they were saying. I have always sang the primary song "Love on Another":
As I have loved you, love one another
By this shall men know, that ye are my disciple
If you have loved one to another.
I know that we are suppose to love one another, but I have never put much thought into: by this shall men know that ye are my disciple. This song has taken on new meaning for me, and I am so excited.

Good News

School has started back and so has the stress of it. Fees have gone up 32% and teachers are being furloughed 9 days out of the semester and they were asked to cut back on their work. Yeah, isn't it great to know that you are paying more for less (sarcasm people). Wouldn't it be sad if this was the good news : )

Anyways, this will be Eric's last semester at Sac State for his Bachelor degree in Sociology. Isn't it weird to think your sad to leave High School but ecstatic to graduate from college. I will unfortunately be graduating in the spring, a semester later than what I expected but that is ok. Eric is still working at Southgate Glass, so bless his heart he's having to do all that, school and work. Isn't he great. I appreciate all that he does for this family.

On too the good news about ME:

No I am no pregnant, but if I got this excited over this just wait until that happens, you better watch out, lol!!!!

I had an interview today with Sutter Medical Center for a position to do some volunteer work with the Child Life Specialist Deparment. Guess what.... I got a call back today, like not even 3 hours after the interview....AND.....I got it!!! Way excited at the moment. I know your think excited over volunteer work, but this is a competitive postition, and the best way to become a Child Life Specialist becuae you have to do 100 hours of volunteer work, and then 420 hours of intership hours and then you can apply for a permanent postition after you become certified. I will be working in the pediatric unit assisting the staff, children and families. Mainly I will playing with the children who are in the hospital for a long period of time. I will still be able to do this and work with Head Start, isn't that awsome!

: )

For our 3 year anniversary Eric and I went camping with some friends of ours at Pinecrest. The weather was perfect, like low 80's to upper 70's during the day, but butt cold at night. We rented a paddle boat and a motor boat for fishing.

Sasha (in the third picture) had this idea to paint a picture of the hulk for Joe, her husbands, birthday. She did all the sketching of the hulk and I just helped with the painting. He stands 8 ft tall, with some glitter in his eye.
I had a blast doing this with her, it made me want to start learning how to paint. It was so therapeutic. I just hope he likes it for his b-day.

Some great news. Some of you have known that I haven't been working since school let out. I was working with head start and they have been suffering from budget cuts and from closing centers. Well last week they called me and asked me if I wanted to start working again and of course I said yes. I have previously been looking for work but no luck of course. I am so glad to be working, I felt like I was not contributing anything to this family financially when I am able to work.

Getting Older

I blame this on getting older. This is pretty sad, I am only 25, and I can't even remember my own age, I was thinking I was 24 for like the longest time. The other day I had to fill out a form for Eric and I couldn't figure out how he is 26 and was born in 1982. I knew he was born in 1982 but I thought he was 26, the math wasn't adding up, either I had his age or b-day wrong, so I had to wait for Eric to get home to confirm what year he was born, and he told me he was actually 27, I thought he was lie'n, but its the truth he's 27! He thought I was said I couldn't remember. The other day I called my mom with something either to tell her or to ask and when she answered I could no longer remember, and I still can't remember. This has been happening to me a lot lately. Like today, I know their is something that I am suppose to be doing but I can't remember.

I really need to do some brain exercises. Any pointers anyone?

Ok so like when I went to post this, this is what came up on the next page: Lumosity, Reclaim Your Brain. How strange is that?

So Eric and I went camping in the El Dorado National Forest. We had a blast. We went to Silver Lake, where the river that runs out of Silver Lake formed some potholes. These potholes were deep enough in some areas where you could jump like 10-15 ft into the water and not even touch the bottom. Eric did this, I was to big of pansy to do it, but maybe next time.

First night....

Of course first thing first SMORES!!!!

My camera blinded him. I thought he looked funny.

The next day....
Thats our little red tent down their.

And of course the bathrooms, they weren't that bad.

While Eric was taking down the tent this is what I was doing. I was so helpful.

I woke up to these!!!!!

Prairie Dogs, I thought they were so darn cute

Eric snapped this picture. I am shocked he was able to get this close. Good Job!

These are the potholes. All the pictures from before are from where we camped.

Thats Eric about to go into the water, that kid is blocking the way.

Our camera went dead after this, bummer. But it was a blast, I do recommend this place its a great day place to go and its simple to get too.

Memory Lost

Today I woke up early and had this idea to get everything ready for a camping trip and two hikes he could choose from, that I wanted to go on. I wanted to surprise Eric with this. I am not normally the spontaneous type, I like to plan things, so I was stressing. We'll all day today I was thinking it was Thursday, Eric has Fridays off. I was running all over the place and it wasn't until 2:15 when I started to wonder what day it was. I couldn't figure it out so I called my dad and he said it was Wednesday. You have got to be kidding me, I've been stressing and rushing all day!

We'll at least the positive thing is...I'll have everything ready for Thursday.

Oakland and San Fran

Eric and I went with some friends of ours to an Oakland A's game and then to San Francisco. The A's bet the Detroit Tigers 5-1. We had a blast, the sun was blasting on us the whole time and Eric got his knees burnt. I took over a hundred pictures between the game and San Fran, so sorry for all the pictures. What can I say I like to take pictures!

Humm, what is he eating, oh beef jerky.

The dots and the A's mascot racing each other. The mascot won!

A view of the Oakland temple from the Bart Station. This is zoomed in. It was way off in the distance. We took the BART into San Fran because its expensive to drive across the bridge and then pay for parking. No thank you, I would rather walk.

If you zoom in on this picture you will notice that this is not a women, it is actually a man. Only in San Fran.

This is the restaurant that we ate at in China Town. The food was way good, but the service was horrible. The lady wasn't very friendly.

Alcatraz in the background.

At Pier 39

I love the Pier in San Fran because of all the street people they have like that skeleton, that's actually a person in that suit dancing.

Brent and Ann our friends that we went with. We went into a sun glass store and we thought these would look funny on him, you can tell by his wife expression

For desert we went to the Rain Forest Cafe. Its way cool inside.

We took this train thing back to the BART station to go home.
